chat room

great, another human wants to talk...

my life is like a reality show
with humans watching
they go ape-sh** at feeding time (pardon my french)
pressing their noses against the glass,
knocking to get our attention
just once I would like to knock on their
dining room window to see their reaction
and it wouldn't be this 2" monkey-proof glass either

it's a job

I know I have it good, shouldn't complain
room and board, free meals
but is this all there is?

just another day in paradise

the job is not hard,
entertain the humans by day
and believe me, they are easily amused
at night go down into the den,
watch some TV, order pizza,
spend some family time,
and do it all again the next day


Hey, You ever watch Twilight Zone? I can imagine one where we are like this, you on one side of the glass and me on the other, but at the end of the day I get to go home and you stay here in this glass cage... now that would be funny!

You got kids? Do they drive you crazy like mine do? Jumping around, trying to get attention, gotta love 'em. Enjoy your kids while you can before you go to that big zoo in the sky.

Well it's been good talking to you, hope you have a good Fathers Day.

Thanks for listening, man, you're not too bad for a human.

A lot to ponder. "Every picture tells a story, don't it?"
